Caries is a globally endemic disease. The FDI World Dental Federation proposed a concept that will shift the global trend of minimal intervention from dental treatment centered on tooth conservation to that based on preventative care. In alpha cyanoacrylate, which is the primary ingredient of instant adhesives, a hydrogen molecule that bonds with the carbon on th position of the acrylate is replaced by a CN base. this case shows the efficacy of the instant adhesive cyanoacrylate to treat dental crown caries, root surface caries, and dentin hypersensitivity. In cyanoacrylate, which is the primary ingredient of instant adhesives, a hydrogen molecule that bonds with the carbon on the position of the acrylate is replaced by a CN base.

In this case, the efficacy of alpha cyanoacrylate for smooth surface caries of the tooth crown when applied to the affected site was examined. Visual examination, probing, and X ray imaging confirmed smooth surface caries on the mesial surface of the maxillary left third molar. Caries of the affected site progressed up to the dentine and probing showed that the areas were slightly soft. Coldwater and heat did not induce pain. There was mild pain during food impaction, and the presence of cavities was confirmed via X ray imaging. The affected site was dried, and foreign bodies, such as food fragments, were removed before applying cyanoacrylate. After the application, the patient experienced no discomfort, such as pain. However, 15 days later, the patient experienced spontaneous pain or pain owing to food impaction. The affected site became hardened, showing progression inhibition. X ray imaging showed no changes, thereby confirming progression suppression.
